RFC 3175 specifies aggregation of Resource ReSerVation Protocol (RSVP)
end-to-end reservations over aggregate RSVP reservations.  This
document specifies aggregation of RSVP end-to-end reservations over
MPLS Traffic Engineering (TE) tunnels or MPLS Diffserv-aware MPLS
Traffic Engineering (DS-TE) tunnels.  This approach is based on
RFC 3175 and simply modifies the corresponding procedures for
operations over MPLS TE tunnels instead of aggregate RSVP
reservations.  This approach can be used to achieve
admission control of a very large number of flows in a scalable
manner since the devices in the core of the network are unaware of
the end-to-end RSVP reservations and are only aware of the MPLS TE
